Is that nut fitting brakes I see? That would make it quite old (pre 81) unless the customer specified it. Looks typical of the 'Engers' TT era 77-81

then again, the rear mech cable stop and tunnel is underbracket and the top tube brazed on cable guides would suggest 80's onwards

Although Alf mainly rode Alan Shorter bikes.

Perhaps a more local commission! Maybe for Dave Orford?


Possibly looks a bit small for Dave?

BTW, are you related to Nick Loasby?


Youngest son (of three). Only two of us got into racing.

I may have handed you the card with his details on. About the only times I managed to avoid that task was when I was actually riding in an event.
